SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Maoming Company plans to bring on stream its new 100,000 tonne/year butadiene rubber (BR) plant at Maoming of Guangdong province after February, a company source said on Friday.
The company completed the construction of BR unit on 27 December 2012, the source said but did not give a reason of why the plant’s start-up has been delayed.
The company started building the plant in September 2011, the source added.
The company delayed its start-up date likely due to the coming Chinese Lunar New Year holidays (9-15 February), a market source said.
